Cock-a-doodle-doo


I have a knee problem! I have had osteoarthritis knee pain for at least eight months. How does it hurt? Only every way imaginable - achy, sharp stabbing pains some times and other times deep throbbing pain, and of course stiffness and popping sounds. It seems I have no cartridge in my knee - they call that "bone on bone." What have I done for this? I have had two cortisone injections in the knee. The first didn't work because 3 days after the shot I tripped and fell right on the knee but the second one did get rid of some inflamation I think and I even walked better. I just last week had the first injection of a series of three that is an hyaluronic acid. It seems that the acid is extracted from a rooster comb! I figure by the time I have had my last injection I will be sitting on my back fence crowing "cock-a-doodle-doo!"

That is the funniest thing ever! Sick, of course to think about the details of it, but ya gotta do what works! I really would like to know who in their right mind one day woke up and thought, "my knee hurts and I am going to inject my knee with the rooster cone. That might make it feel better."
Well, whoever it was...I am glad that they did it so you get some relief! :)
